|Action||Regulations for Licensure of Abortion Facilities|
|Comment Period||Ends 3/29/2013|
“I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health. These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards. Abortion is not health care because it ends lives rather than healing them--and without proper regulation has resulted in the death of mothers. The current regulations are reasonable, common-sense measures to ensure that life-saving equipment is on hand, infections are prevented, and clear written policies and building guidelines are in place. Please maintain strong permanent abortion facility regulations to protect the health and safety of women.
